The Bear Gallery inside of Pioneer Park’s Centennial Center for the Arts doesn’t see many bears during hibernation season, but if one were to stop by between noon and 6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, it would find a very colorful display of local art.
On January 8, the Fairbanks Arts Association (FAA) unveiled “New Media: art via digital technology” and “Re-cycled, Re-assembled, Re-used” (RRR), its first exhibition of the year.
According to FAA Program Coordinator Seth Schwartz the inspiration behind holding both exhibits at the same time was to “juxtapose the new and the old.”
The RRR is an open entry exhibit featuring Fairbanks Artists that include Sue Cole, David Mollett, Edie Barbour, Glen Gasaway and UAF MFA student Junko Yamagida.
UAF’s Kade Mendelowitz featured a digital short animation film entitled, “Hounds” and is juror of the New Media submissions.
The exhibition will run until January 30. For more information, check out the Fairbanks Arts Association’s website at www.fairbanksarts.org
